FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE- - -THANK YOU

GRANDVIEW THUNDER 5-25'S & HOUSE OF THUNDER HALLOWEEN PARTY TO CLOSE OUT THUNDER SERIES SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17
GUITARIST GREG ORT TO OPEN SHOW WITH  HARD ROCK VERSION OF NATIONAL ANTHEM

The twentieth season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presented by Lee Myles will come to a close at the Grandview Speedway on Saturday night, October 17.  The House of Thunder Halloween Party and the Grandview Thunder 5-25's  will mark the all time  ninety-first Thunder on the Hill event.  The live singing of the National Anthem has been a standing tradition at the Thunder Series, but on October 17 a different twist will take place.    Guitarist Greg Ort of Riegelsville, PA will present our  National Anthem, hard rock style.   Ort has performed for over twenty years at stops like B.B. King's Blues nightclub in New York City, L'Amour's in Brooklyn, the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ  and the Crocodile Rock Café in Allentown, PA.
  
Immediately following the National Anthem, the Grandview Thunder 5-25's will take the first green flag of the night as the Ghostly Legends battle in their twenty-five lap feature.    Joining the Legends will be the URC Spooky Sprints, the Nasty Modifieds, the Monster Midgets and the Scary Sportsman Modifieds.

Thanks to R.M. Palmer Company and COMDIAL Telephone Communications, there will be plenty of Halloween treats along with that special visit by Joe the Pizza Dude.

It's no trick, but a real  treat to all fans is the reasonable  $20 adult general admission price,  that breaks-down to just $4 per 25 lap feature.   Admission is just $5 for children 6-11, under 6  will be admitted free.   The pit fee is $25 and a license is not required.   Gates to the House of Thunder will squeak open at 4 PM with the first of five 25 lap features taking the green flag at 6 PM.    Come early, if you dare and stay late as the MONSTER SMASH Demolition Derby will eventually bring darkness to Grandview Speedway in 2009.   

Spectators of all ages are invited to dress up for the Halloween Party and prizes will be  awarded.   All spectators in Halloween costumes will be invited to join in the victory lane photo at the end of the night with the five different feature  winners. 

Over one-hundred cars will take part in the Grandview Thunder 5-25's  and showcase some of the top name drivers in their respective divisions.  Jeff Strunk,  Craig VonDohren, Billy Pauch Jr.,  Mike Gular, Duane Howard,  MeMe DeSantis, Doug Manmiller and Kevin Hirthler are just a few of the stars going to battle when the Nasty NASCAR Modifieds take to the hill.  Jeff Strunk and Mike Gular will end the battle as well, for who will be the King of the Hill modified title winner of 2009.  

Who else will be in the field. . . . . .
